It seems to stay in an american landscape of Far West or in a canadian wood.
There is also a copy of a tent similar to that of the native american indians.
In the proximity you can follow the course of a small river in the forest and you can meet easily some reindeer. A place out of the world close to the end of the world (Europe).
Gargia Fjallutsue in the reality is 24 km far from the unimpressive city of Alta and probably is a choice you can remind more than the standard hotel in the city. It is also at a moderate altitude and I imagine how white could be the landscape during the winter season.
It features some cottages. Some of them are small flat, fully equipped with kitchen. All build in a wooden rustic architecture. Nice and simple.
You can eat in the very clean and simple restaurant. Not so lively but with the atmosphere of a mountain baita. Food is at the same time simple, acceptable and very cheap for the norwegian standard.
Also the lodge is enough cheap, so if you like this kind of atmosphere is enough appealing. The service level is simple too but the ladies managing the structure are very kind.
At the end Gargia Fjellstue could appear at a first impression a sad place in the middle of nowhere but the natural ambiance is beatiful and the genuine atmosphere is rewarding.
